As foretold by fiery 45 last month, Tanika Charles delivers her soul-stacked debut album. Gutsy, energetic and backed by a tight act, Tanika has the scope and space to explore the full soul spectrum; the thumping upbeat twister "Soul Run", the swooning doo-wap of "More Than A Man" and gospel-inspired delivery of R&B strutter "Money" and heart-stopping vocal peaks and troughs of the cosmic blues ballad "Heavy" are just a few of the highlights on this highly accomplished debut album. Tip.
The Dewale brothers first proper studio album in 12 years, From Deewee has been one of the most anticipated and warmly welcomed albums of the year. Unless you've been asleep or on another planet since March you've probably already streamed or download it... But nothing beats the vinyl treatment as it brings the one-take, non-stop recorded session concept to life with weight and a rich sound their analogue machines were invented for. Featuring drums from both Sepultura's Igor Cavalera and Turbowolf's Blake Davies and some of their most timeless, hooky fusions, this is a remarkable return from one of electronic music's most influential acts.
